I am Mariposa aka Marcus, from London born and bred. I have spent many years living and in love with Spain and so finally I've taken the plunge to make my childhood dream a reality, and move to Spain full time, Andalucía!
The big plan is too build a Spiritual (not religious) sanctuary and eco gardens. Self reliance is key to our project. To create three gardens. An Apothecary, and Orchard garden and the other is to create a large vegetable and flower garden. To keep some livestock such as chickens for fresh eggs, goats for milk etc. No animals will be killed here. They will all have names and can be petted :-)
The house will be renovated in to a Spiritual Sanctuary, offering holistic therapies and creative Artistic retreats. Eventually!
The plans are vast so come and help us create it, while enjoying all the benefits!
I hope to see you soon!

To help is build a Spiritual Sanctuary for all that need it. Sharing of skills and education, lots of fun, Love and growth. That’s daily life here.
Creating a Bio-Garden in El Olivar
We need help to renovate the house and cave rooms too but the Bio-Garden is as important. Fruit, vegetable and flower gardens that will sustain us all.
The gardens were the first of projects to have started. Most of the beds are now dug and manured.
The Plan 2020-21
